This range is a collaboration with well-known South African design studio EVOLUTION PRODUCT who create prints inspired by nostalgic narratives from Southern Africa. This is a fern print from 1860 when a retired lieutenant colonel from England recorded fresh and dried fern specimens as photo prints. The texture of the photographic paper and the iridescent effect of the film in contrast to the negative silhouette of the ferns captures the magic of these plants and time.
How they are made: First they collect the brown paper from a local packaging factory. This is then screen printed with a certain design. The printed paper is then fused to a special cotton to make it strong enough to stitch. At the end the sleeve is sprayed with Nano Liquid Glass to be water resistant.
There is a pocket-sleeve tucked under the flap, in front of the main pocket, to give you a place for cables, papers or your stylus. The sleeve closes with two magnets that won’t damage your device.
